    Dragon's Prophet is a pretty standard MMORPG enriched with some action and tons dragons. Those aren't just mounts but friends, helpers, allies, enemies and ancient gods. Unfortunately, they live in a pretty boring world.

    Do you remember the original hunter in World of Warcraft? Where you could look for and then tame wild beats? I miss that and that's why I like Dragon's Prophet with its Pokémon-like hunt for exotic creatures.

    Yes there are tons of dragons and yes, you're gonna catch 'em all, but sadly this is not enough to recommend Dragon's Prophet. Under scales and tusks there is an ordinary MMORPG with boring quests and too much grinding in it, and the old graphics engine doesn't help to keep players engaged, but at least it's free to play.

    Seducing with its dragon theme, free to play and quite well done as it even offers advanced housing, Dragon's Prophet is an MMORPG which does not look ridiculous. But we do have to admit that it lacks some punch to be able to compete against the genre's stars because of poor polish, an old graphics engine, dull quests and a small amount of races and classes. We note that those drawbacks could be improved by an update overtime which allows us hope. But is trying Dragon's Quest enough to get hooked? Not really but at least it's free to try.

    I had such high hopes for Dragon’s Prophet. Everything about it sounds like so much fun on paper. But what we have is a clear case of a game that needs a lot more time in development before it should be taking money from anyone. This shouldn’t be an open beta, and you shouldn’t be able to spend money in Auretia. I understand that SOE and Runewaker need to pay the bills, but both parties would have been far better off letting the game take a little more time in closed beta to take in and react to feedback from its community. Dragon’s Prophet isn’t the worst game I’ve played this year, but it could have been so much better. And that’s what’s really unfortunate.

    With dragon taming, action combat, and robust skill and housing systems, there's an enjoyable experience at the core of Dragon's Prophet that never manages to break free of the dull environment and grinding pace that surrounds it.

Finally there is a Game where you can go Capture a Dragon and use it as a Mount to Explore or Fight Enemies with.

    It's Still a Very New game and Obviously needs a few tweaks, but what new game doesn't? One of the main things I hope to see sooner than later would be the access to play from Australia. I'm in the US and have gamer friends from Australia; Once they expand to there I will be playing this game every day with my Friends.

    The Combat is good and the amount of skills to use is Goldy-lox. I find that when a Game Implements tons of Spells it Takes away from the Game Experience. I've stopped playing games due to spending too much time messing with the loads of spells that my character has and doesn't really need. Dragon's Prophet has uses a handful of spells that Differ depending on the Class you choose. The best thing about the spells and combat would be the fact they have a combo system. Instead of having a plain spell it offers variety through the different combos you can use.

    There is a large area of different locations in this World of Dragons. The Character Creation process is done very well since they have Implemented a Percentage Based Customization Process. You are offered the experience of going into immense detail when it comes to the different categories of the Character Creation Process.

    To be Straight forward... This is a Great Game especially for being so New.
    Whoever says this game isn't enjoyable or poorly made is either having a bad day or is a pessimistic downer who enjoys spreading negativity wherever they venture.
    This Game is Well made and is Free To Play so forgive me if I don't see how someone wouldn't enjoy playing a Well made game where you can go out and capture a dragon and use it as a mount to go fly around.

It has intuitive, responsive controls withDragon's Prophet is a pretty standard MMO with all the features you come to expect with MMOs today. It has intuitive, responsive controls with a action feel to combat along with a mixed bag of graphics. The environment looks terrific, with great vistas and very long distance field of vision. However, the character models and armor appear to be low quality. Overall, while repetitive in quest grind, it is a fun game where you can tame just about any dragon you encounter and use it as pet or mount. I would normally give it an 8, however I gave it a 10 to offset the ridiculous zeros. This is a polished, high profile studio game, not some f2p,half finished game from some no name company. Zero is simply uncalled for. Expand

    I played this game since 'open beta' and I know some things about this game.

    Positive things:
    This game is really nice... you can make levels more easily compared to other mmorpg. It is a free to
    play and you can get your free (tamable) mount since low levels.

    You can have your own dragon.
    You can train your own dragon.
    You can fight while mounting your dragon (really fantastic)
    Also free-user has a chance to get their own big ancient dragon.

    This game saves your progress in real time (so also if you crush... you don't lose anything)

    The main story is good...

    There are nice events as 'halloween event', 'merry-christmas'....and there are some free useful stuffs for all "free-users".

    It is a good game everytime in expansion and in evolution...

    Negative things
    At the beginning maybe is a little hard because you have many options, panels, and maybe you can be disorientated from that. However are similar to other mmorpgs (otherwise there are settings where you can modify what you want)... Online there is a forum and a wiki with some useful guides.

    The game sometimes (usually) crushes. Randomly.

    In every new patch you can see old bugs fixed... and new bugs that comes... but Isn't it a problem for those who knows 'Skyrim'

    Game has a lot of potential. Combat could be fun. Mount system and lots of dragons are good, and the housing system is spot on.
    HOWEVER.

    This game is complete garbage in two ways
    First, the opening few hours are disgusting. 100%. They are so slow, boring, endless cutscenes with lip-syncing that I would expect from a PS1 game and the subtitles do not math the voices.
    Speaking of PS1 games, put the game on the lowest settings and you'll see what I mean. Anything that's nearing the middle-range of your vision begins to move at a few frames per second, so a character will move a good distance and have taken two steps, and that is just not acceptable for a game being released in 2013, even on lowest settings.
    On highest settings, however, the game still looks like it's something out of 2008 and yet is ridiculously hardware intensive for how bad it looks.
    2/10, painful to play

    This game has too many bugs.
    The creators do not give you all the rules needed to play the game. They say they have counters for dungeons to find dragons but they will not let you see the counter, they don't tell you if has reset due to maintenance, they don't tell you if it resets because you entered a different dungeon.
    To find a wild dragon, you have to compete with every other player once every 4 days at a certain time or a random time.
    In order to maximize playing, you have to spend over $50 a month to open your backpack and dragon holding spots. This also includes trying to add skills or slots to your dragons.
    Many players have different accounts and exploit a housing bug to trade items to each character.
    OH! and what you spend on one character (backpack slots, etc.) does not extend to your other characters.
    The DPS is not correct because tanks and such do just as much damage as an archer or mage, so don't play a mage. Max level is 94 and gaming is worse than topping off of WoW, and the storyline is boring.
    Save your time, save your money, do something else.. play Nintendo original Mario Bros, because it is more entertaining.

    End

    Negatives: performance problems, bugs bugs bugs bugs and even more bugs!
    a lot of people cant play this game properly even at roughly 10 FPS where the same PC works fine on much MUCH more complex games and grafical spectacles. The support on European servers has no clue what their doing and tell roughly 80% of people to ask the forums as if people in the forums would know the ansers to game related problems.
    Patches are never tested and always patched, then crashing and so on and so on.

    The Cash Politic on the euro-serversare most likely: pay or lose
    and a lot of people REFUSE to pay anymore because of said problems.
    Servers are empty and performance drops underground for no apperant reason.

    This game really is bad if it wasnt for the dragon part where this still has the monopole on. Create a proper Dragon related MMO on a PROPER game Engine (Yes they created their own engine wich grills grafic cards with extreme temperature while not even using them halveway) and Dragons Prophet will soon be forgotten. It is a forgettable game wch had so much promise in the beginning wich dissapoints their player more and more everyday
